Family Shorts

  • 88 mins

With a cast of astronauts, beavers, golden birds and so much more, this programme is sure to delight all ages.

Animated and live action shorts from around the world combine to produce a delightful concoction of film fun. Come meet the little Australian girl who believes there is a cake-eating hippo on her roof, and the New Zealand boy who foils robbers from stealing his uncle’s medal. Some of these are hilariously funny while others might make you think about friendship, family, healthy eating and magic.
